  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Sidelined at least one month

    Manager Pat Murphy said Saturday that Dunn has a disc issue in his back and is expected to remain on the injured list for at least another month, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Dunn landed on the MLB injured list Wednesday after originally being sent to Triple-A on June 19, and it now seems that he'll be stuck on the IL for an extended period of time. The 26-year-old infielder hadn't been playing very often anyway prior to landing on the IL, and he'll likely be optioned to Nashville again once he's fully recovered.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Lands on IL with back strain

    The Brewers recalled Dunn from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday and placed him on the 10-day injured list with a back strain.

    Dunn was optioned to Nashville last week, but it turns out that he had been dealing with a back injury so he will go on the IL instead. It's not clear how long he might be sidelined, but the infielder could be optioned again once he's healthy.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Dispatched to Nashville

    The Brewers optioned Dunn to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Playing time has been hard to come across recently for Dunn, and the emergence of Joey Ortiz hasn't helped. The 26-year-old Dunn has slashed .221/.282/.316 through 104 plate appearances in the big leagues this year and will now head back to the minors to get back on track. Tyler Black was recalled from Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: No longer starting Sunday

    Dunn was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the White Sox.

    The 26-year-old was set to receive his first start in a week Sunday, but he'll instead sit as William Contreras and Willy Adames were late additions to the lineup. Joey Ortiz has established himself as Milwaukee's everyday third baseman, so Dunn is unlikely to see much playing time while the infield group remains healthy.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Back in majors

    Milwaukee recalled Dunn from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. He'll start at third base and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    After being optioned to Nashville earlier in May, the 26-year-old infielder earned his way back to the majors after slashing .310/.394/.517 across eight games at Triple-A. Though he'll get the starting nod Sunday in his return to the big club, Dunn is still expected to play second fiddle to Joey Ortiz at third base and will likely function as more of a utility man.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Heading to minors

    The Brewers optioned Dunn to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Though he served as Milwaukee's designated hitter in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Pirates, Dunn's playing time had been relatively sparse since mid-April with Joey Ortiz overtaking him as the preferred option at third base. As a left-handed hitter, Dunn wasn't a fit for the Brewers as a strong-side platoon player, either, so he'll head to Nashville to get some everyday playing time. Outfielder Chris Roller was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Expected to be optioned

    Dunn appears set to be optioned to Triple-A Nashville prior to Wednesday's game versus the Pirates, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Brewers haven't announced any transactions as Wednesday's 1:10 p.m. ET opening pitch approaches, but Dunn no longer had a locker in the clubhouse. Dunn has slashed just .192/.240/.255 since April 16 and has seen his playing time slip, so his expected demotion doesn't come as a surprise.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Back on bench Monday

    Dunn is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

    Dunn started at third base in each of the past four contests and went 5-for-13 with a triple, a walk, three runs and an RBI over that stretch. Despite the run of steady playing time of late, Dunn is still expected to move back into a utility role, as manager Pat Murphy noted Sunday that he wanted to give the rookie a more extended look after he had fallen out of favor in recent weeks. Dunn likely hit well enough to maintain his spot on the 26-man active roster for now, but Joey Ortiz still profiles as the Brewers' top option at the hot corner.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Getting trial in everyday role

    Dunn will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    Over his final 13 games of April, Dunn had gone just 3-for-25 with 12 strikeouts and had seemingly removed himself from consideration for the everyday role at third base, which Joey Ortiz had claimed a firm grasp of due to his much stronger start to the season. However, the Brewers aren't yet willing to pull the plug on Dunn, as manager Pat Murphy told Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Dunn would get an extended look this weekend to prove that he's worthy of sticking around with the big club rather than getting optioned to Triple-A Nashville. For his part, Dunn has done well to convince the Brewers he deserves to remain up in the majors, as he's gone 4-for-9 with a triple, a walk, three runs and an RBI over the previous three contests. Murphy said that the starting third base job still belongs to Ortiz, but Dunn will get his fourth straight nod Sunday and might have made a case to see more consistent playing time as a utility option.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Sits in second straight

    Dunn is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

    Dunn was awarded three consecutive starts at third base this past Wednesday through Saturday, but he was unable to break out of his recent funk at the plate, as he produced just one hit in 11 at-bats. The rookie has posted a .333 OPS over his last nine games and now finds himself back on the bench for the second game in a row. Joey Ortiz still looks to be the Brewers' preferred option at third base for the time being.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Losing work to Ortiz

    Dunn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    Dunn is on the bench for the third time in four games, with all of his absences coming against right-handed pitching. The rookie looked to have gained traction as the Brewers' everyday third baseman after getting on base at a .400 clip through his first seven big-league games, but he's starting to lose playing time to Joey Ortiz after going 2-for-13 with six strikeouts over his past three contests.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Not starting Friday

    Dunn is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles.

    Dunn is 1-for-10 with four strikeouts over his past two contests and finds himself on the bench for a second straight game. Joey Ortiz is starting at the hot corner against Baltimore right-hander Tyler Wells.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Bows out of lineup

    Dunn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    Dunn will take a seat after he went 1-for-10 with four strikeouts through the first two games of the series in Cincinnati, halting some of the momentum he had built during his hot start to the season. Joey Ortiz will replace Dunn at third base Wednesday, but the latter still looks to have a grasp on a regular role at this point.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Steals bag, goes deep

    Dunn went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Mariners.

    Dunn launched his first career home run in the fourth inning and then recorded his first MLB steal in the eighth. The 26-year-old was 3-for-12 with a 1:5 BB:K through his first four MLB appearances before Friday's breakout. He'll need to continue swinging the bat well to maintain playing time with the Brewers.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Taking seat Wednesday

    Dunn is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Twins.

    Dunn had started each of the previous three games, with two of those starts coming at third base. He'll yield the hot corner to Joey Ortiz in the series finale.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Making third straight start

    Dunn is starting at third base and batting seventh in Tuesday's contest against the Twins.

    Dunn didn't play Opening Day versus a southpaw, but the left-handed hitter has now been in the lineup for each of the last three games against righties (two at third base, one at designated hitter). The 26-year-old looks like he might be a tick ahead of Joey Ortiz is the third base pecking order, at least versus right-handers.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Starting at third base Saturday

    Dunn will start at third base and bat seventh in Saturday's game against the Mets.

    An 11th-round pick in 2019, Dunn reached as high as Triple-A with the Yankees, but he spent last season at Double-A Reading in the Phillies organization. He'll be making his big-league debut Saturday against right-hander Luis Severino after Andruw Monasterio got the Opening Day start at the hot corner. New manager Pat Murphy may just be looking to work everyone in early on this season; it's probably too early to say Dunn is leading a platoon. However, the 26-year-old has some power and speed -- enough to make him interesting in deep leagues if he's playing regularly.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Makes Opening Day roster

    The Brewers recalled Dunn from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

    After slashing .282/.404/.487 with a homer and 10 RBI during Cactus League play, Dunn has officially earned a place on a major-league roster for the first time in his career. The 26-year-old seems destined for a spot on Milwaukee's bench, but his defensive versatility could net him an occasional start versus right-handed pitching.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Looks set to make roster

    Brewers manager Pat Murphy said in an interview Wednesday with 97.3 The Game Milwaukee that Dunn is in line to make the Opening Day roster.

    Dunn was sent to minor-league camp earlier this month, but he looks as though he'll be summoned to the majors to take over the active roster spot of Garrett Mitchell (finger), who will open the season on the injured list. The 26-year-old hit .282/.404/.487 this spring and can play second base, third base, shortstop and left field. Dunn would be making his major-league debut when he gets into a game.

  • Brewers' Oliver Dunn: Sent to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Dunn to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Dunn showed well this spring with an .876 OPS, one home run and four stolen bases over 14 Cactus League contests. The 26-year-old has yet to appear in the majors but seems to have a good shot to debut at some point during the 2024 season.
